Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

This is a repost from UI Meta, but it affects the SO site, the meta SO site and the ui.stackexchange.com site as well:

Not sure if this is the right forum, but there's an issue with the user listing page on IE8 where some of the users get squished together: ui.stackexchange user listing bug

stackoverflow user listing bug

Long standing bug. I know that I've reported it before, but I can't find a reference. Possibly it was on the original UserVoice site. – tvanfosson Aug 24 '10 at 16:37

This isn't relevant anymore, since the user list page has since been overhauled, but just for the record, we did indeed put a workaround for this in place. I'll let the code speak for itself:

@* The following pretty useless rule is solely for the eigth iteration
   of a certain browser from Redmond. Forcing some content between the
   users (even if invisible) seems to stop a bug randomly overlapping
   two user infos (see e.g. http://meta.stackexchange.com/questions/39353). *@
    .user-info:after
    {
        content:'.';
        height:0;
        display:block;
        overflow:hidden;
    }

@Ryan It could have been the answer to why you are missing an avatar.. – Tyler Carter Aug 24 '10 at 16:10
    
@Ryan The distinction is pretty much non-existent on meta – Michael Mrozek Aug 24 '10 at 19:50

This is a bug in IE8, not us.
